Conservation of soil and water resources is important for sustainability of agriculture and environment. Soil and water resources are under immense pressure due to ever increasing population   Alaunja watershed, located on ‘Chotanagpur’ plateau of Bihar, is mainly under single cropping.

The area receives more than mm of rainfall but it has not been utilised properly to increase the agricultural output. The remote sensing, geophysical, DBTM (Digital Basement Terrain Model) and GIS (Geographic information System) techniques were used for providing scientific database for   Soil Management: 2.

Today these techniques of soil and water conservation are being prac- ticed in many countries with much benefit to great numbers of ://   Village land-use management is an exciting new idea which takes soil and water conservation one step further than simple earth terraces or stone bunds.

It is an integrated global approach to conservation in which the villagers take responsibility for all their The Loess Plateau is well known to the world due to its severe soil erosion resulting from complex landforms, high soil erod-ibility, concentrated and high-intensity rainfall, and the destruc-tion of vegetation from long-term human activity (Zhao et al.

It includes chapters on the management of cover crops, water, nutrients, weeds, insect pests and nematodes, as well as crop selection and rotation, livestock This book is the first to systematically explore experimental erosion by integrating theory, erosion observations, and conservation applications.

ABSTRACT: Because land degradation from water-induced soil erosion is a serious problem in India and only fragmentary information on factors affecting soil erosion is available, an attempt was made to prepare a countrywide map of soil erosion rates for land use prepare the map, available maps of soil, rainfall erosivity, slope, land use, forest vegetation, degraded land, sand dunes Soil management problems and possible solution in western Nigeria.

Soil Management in Tropical America, Bornemisza, E and Alvarado, A (eds.). North Carolina State University, Raleigh, NC, pp. –   The book deals with several aspects of soil erosion, focusing on its connection with the agricultural world.

Chapters’ topics are various, ranging from irrigation practices to soil nutrient, land use changes or tillage methodologies. The book is subdivided into fourteen chapters, sorted in four sections, grouping different facets of the topic: introductive case studies, erosion   Streamflow regimes of the Yanhe River under climate and land use change, Loess Plateau, China Peng Gao,1,2,3 Guantao Jiang,1 Yongping Wei,2 Xingmin Mu,1,3* Fei Wang,1,3 Guangju Zhao1,3 and Wenyi Sun1,3 1 Institute of Soil and Water Conservation of Northwest A&F University,Yangling, Shaanxi, China 2 Australia-China Centre on Water Resources Research, The University of Water harvesting is an age-old concept in India.

Various methods are used in different regions of India. Khadins water harvesting method is used in (a) Rajasthan (b) Maharashtra (c) Bihar (d) Uttar Pradesh. Kattas is the ancient method of water harvesting found in (a) Hibachi Pradesh (b) Karnataka (c) Tamil Nadu (d) Madhya Pradesh.

The soil erosion rate (soil erosion modulus, soil erosion amount) is a reverse measure index of the soil and water conservation function of the ecosystem, and an increase in soil loss means a reduction in the soil and water conservation function.

In the InVEST model, soil erosion is estimated using the RULSE (Huang et al., ).
